As the title alludes, we went up north again. It was the most enjoyable trip so far this year! Flowers we're blooming everywhere, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries were ripening all through the forest and we had the most bountiful mushroom hunt yet.
Scott and Bodie spent hours on the pier, reeling in bluegills and throwing tennis balls for Harper. We roasted marshmallows, went swimming and tested the 4-wheeler.
We found lobster mushrooms, chanterelles, russula, and many, many more. Scott, Bodie and I we're approximately 100 yards from the trailhead when we came across the first cluster of them, and as we kept hiking we found hundreds of additional mushrooms. We harvested only those which we were certain were edible, and only enough for a meal or two.
Later that evening, Scott made the best dinner, it's highlight being the sauteed mushrooms from our hike in the forest. After dinner, I paddled the lake in Scott's solo canoe (a boat I haven't paddled before but which I plan to paddle many more times ... it's super sleek in the water!).
While on the water, I was graced with another gorgeous sunset, directly over the cabin. What a great way to end to a crazy week. Four days in the northwoods with my guys. I'm such a lucky lady!
